Abu Dhabi, UAE, July 3, 2012: During a press conference held today at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), key players representing the region's oil and gas sector announced that the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC), the largest event for the industry in the Middle East, will become an annual event from 2013.

ADIPEC began as a biennial event in 1984 as a platform for oil and gas professionals to network, discover new ideas and debate core industry issues. Over the years it has grown in stature, significance and size with every exhibition since. Abu Dhabi is at the heart of the oil and gas industry, and ADIPEC has played a significant role in positioning the UAE Capital as a key destination for this sector.

ADIPEC 2013, which will take place in November, will have a strong focus on gas, reflecting its increasing share of the global energy mix and heightened regional gas demand for power generation.

"ADNEC is looking forward to welcoming the next edition of ADIPEC", said Humaid Al Dhaheri, ADNEC's Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. "Just as the show has become internationally renowned, so has ADNEC and our venue has grown to match the increasing needs of the event with the most modern facilities and technology."

ADIPEC is held under the patronage of the President of the United Arab Emirates, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and organised by dmg:: events. It is the largest exhibition for the Middle East oil and gas industry and it is supported by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and the UAE's Ministry of Energy. Up to date, ADIPEC features over 1,600 exhibitors and attracts more than 45,000 attendees.
